Have you ever been invited for a media interview on behalf of your library and weren’t sure how to handle it?
Media coverage of your organization or library can significantly promote your services, resources, and programming, while enhancing your organization’s reputation. However, for many library and information professionals, an interview can be fraught with anxiety. This workshop is designed to help you excel in communication with journalists – with special focus on radio and television broadcast segments. Learn how to prepare for an interview, speak effectively about your organization and sound clear and comfortable on air.

You will learn: 

1) What to expect when invited to an interview 
2) How to cover all your points in three minutes 
3) How to handle difficult questions 
4) Stage fright and body language 
5) What to wear
6) Skype and FaceTime: Choosing the best set and lighting your webcam
